Curse of the Bibliophile

My name is Katie and books have and always will be one of my biggest passions in life. There isn't a day that goes by where I'm not seen lost in another world of books.

Black Bird, Volume 1

Black Bird, Vol. 1 - Kanoko Sakurakouji All she wanted was a normal life, but fate had other plans.I love this series. The setting is beautiful and all of the characters so unique. None of them are perfect, but they do the best they can with what they’ve got. This story is just plain fun and addicting. The lead character isn’t overly cheerful and in fact is pretty average if it wasn’t for her unusual ability to see spirits. Misao is a girl who has always longed for a normal life with her loved ones, but she doesn’t get depressed and weepy. Instead she does her best to bear it and tries to rely on her own ability to gain happiness. She does falter at times, but I love that she isn’t perfect and can have a bit of a selfish side to her. It shows that she is human. I love the dynamic between her and Kyo they are so great together. Even though Misao can be a bit naïve when it comes to Kyo she doesn’t let him push her around. Kyo is a sweet guy, but he does have a tendency to love to tease Misao. I find it nice that although he wants to protect her he doesn’t treat her like she is a china doll that could easily break. He tells her straight out what’s going on and allows her to make her own decisions. Aside from all the seriousness the story is full of hilarious antics that the characters get into and had me cracking up a lot. It gave us a nice relief so it wasn’t overly serious. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for Misao and Kyo.
